A peaceful guard-gated paradise, the exclusive Del Mar Country Club is home to just 101 custom residences and surrounded by a world-class golf courseâ€”an ideal setting for this extraordinary chateau-inspired estate, which occupies a rare gated and view-enriched 3-plus-acre homesite at the end of a cul-de-sac that ensures unparalleled privacy. Beautiful architecture and unyielding construction standards combine timeless traditional grandeur and cosmopolitan French Chic decor. The stage for grand living is set in a 2-story foyer that boasts dual curving staircases with ornate hand-forged wrought-iron railings and a spectacular chandelier. Featuring 8 bedrooms and 10 baths total, the estate reveals a state-of-the-art 22-seat theater with fully reclining leather seats, a handsome game room, wood-paneled office, a craft room, upstairs bonus room, and a detached 2-bedroom guest house with full kitchen. Living areas comfortably accommodate formal and casual entertaining, and a divine master suite hosts 2 bathrooms, an imported Italian onyx fireplace, and a professionally designed boutique-inspired walk-in closet. A genuine chef's kitchen checks all of the boxes with stainless steel appliances, extra-large granite island accommodating the largest parties, 2 oversized pantries, a hand-forged copper farmhouse sink, and custom cabinetry crafted by Beau Séjours of Beverly Hills. Rich details are led by a selectively remodeled first level, imported European light fixtures, a Crestron lighting system, silk carpeting upstairs, and stone and wood flooring throughout, including 150-year-old wood flooring imported from a Provence-region farmhouse in France. Golf course and park-like views enhance grounds that display a 7-car garage with golf cart stall, an imported Italian marble gazebo, sports court, guest parking for more than 25 cars, a cascading waterfall at the entry, a fire pit, lake-sized pool and spa with waterfall and grotto, and a loggia with grill, bar and full bath.
